A 51-year-old male patient was admitted with a penetrating aortic ulcer. Endovascular aortic reconstruction was performed. The revascularization success was satisfactory, and the patient had no pain after the procedure. On control computed tomography angiography, the correct position and functionality of the endovascular stent graft was established without a penetrating ulcer of the aorta.
